Workers vow to unionize in spite of owners

NEW YORK — Carwash workers say they will unionize to improve pay and working conditions despite owners’ wishes.

NEW YORK — Carwash workers say they will unionize to improve pay and working conditions despite owners’ attempts to discourage them, according to the New York Daily News.

Workers at a Bronx carwash say the Association of Car Wash Owners met with them to discourage them from joining the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union, the article said.

If they join, they’ll become the eighth carwash in the city to join the union in two years, stated the article.

The association provided snacks and drinks, and warned about the “bad unions” that are out there, said the article.

Workers at several carwashes say they have been intimidated by carwash owners about joining unions, the article noted.

Guillermo Brizuelas is a 23-year-old immigrant from El Salvador who makes $6.30 an hour at the carwash in the Bronx.

According to the story, he says the workers will join the union no matter what. “For us there is no turning back. We have been exploited too much.”
